Christmas Wish (Herb Alpert) 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Alpert's first Christmas record in 50 years does not disappoint. It is thoughtfully constructed, heartfelt and well performed. It combines lush orchestration, lovely solos, great singing by Lani Hall, and a recognition of the Carpenters' Christmas Wish, including Richard on the celesta. It is fun (Santa Baby), spiritual (Jesus Joy of Man's Desiring) and nostalgic for wonderful Christmases past in our traditional favorites.

I am delighted by this mixture of Alpert's musical styles and his ability to make fresh what could have been trite. He delivers on being fun (Santa Baby) and serious (Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring). Simple solos show up at the right time and lush full instrumental arrangements span the years of Christmas music. Lani Hall's beautiful voice is a great tribute to Karen Carpenter's Christmas song. The inclusion of Richard Carpenter is a loving touch from Alpert, who is a great trumpeter, thoughtful and loving man, and certainly one who can create joy, nostalgia, longing and spirituality seamlessly as his CD flows through the musical panorama of Christmas. Fifty years after his other Christmas record, Alpert shows a deeper and richer aspect of the season.
